Hi there. Don't you just love Valentine's Day? I do. But for me, it's not just about the cute cards, chocolates and flowers. It's a remembrance for me of the One who loved me enough to die for me. The One who endured so much, just so that I could be redeemed. That One? Jesus Christ. His love for all of us is the most wonderful example of Valentine's Day there is. If there was a way I could send Him a Valentine's Day card, I would. The best I can do is just to tell Him on a regular basis how much I love Him and am thankful for the His sacrifice on Golgotha's Hill over 2000 years ago.
Today's card uses a vintage photo of two darling angels. I used my pink colored pencil to add some color to their robes while leaving the rest of the picture in shades of gray.
I started with a piece of Real Red (SU) card stock for the A2 card base. I inked the edges of the photo with DI Vintage Photo and matted it on a piece of Cream card stock (Recollections). I then found a vintage post card image in my stash and inked it all over with the Vintage Photo ink to distress it a bit. I chose a piece of DCWV brown and red rose patterned paper as the background. I adhered the DP and then the post card image. I added a strip of double sided tape (American Crafts) to the center of the card and added the red gathered ribbon. I then used pop dots to adhere the angels. The sentiment is from Studio G and stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk. I added some brads to the corners for a finished look.
It's not overly cluttered with embellishments, but I think it has that vintage feel.
I am entering this card into the ABC Challenges, the Robin's Fetishes and the Shopping Our Stash challenges for this week.
Thanks for coming by and I hope you enjoyed my card for today. God bless y'all.
